  16. “Talking is easy, typing is hard.” - Mamta from Jaipur,

    India Mamta just got her first smartphone, and she loves watching videos on YouTube to discover recipes, learn stitching techniques, and listen to her favourite Bollywood (Indian Movies) songs. Phone Her phone, a Samsung J2 with a cracked screen, was passed down to her by a family member. 01. Voice Interaction Typing is difficult, so she finds it easier to use voice when looking for videos. It doesn't always go as intended though. When using her phone outside in a loud environment and it simply doesn’t understand her. She blames herself when it doesn’t work. 02. https://digitalconfidence.design/opportunities

  21. Problems With This Onboarding Approach Onboarding Problems Value proposition: An

    app’s purpose isn’t always readily apparent. 
 
 Activation: Primary goal of onboarding 
 Before they achieve action, users are 
 - Trying out the product 
 - Understanding the value proposition, features 
 - Determining if it is a good fit for them 
 
 Activation is the point at which users "get your product and its value proposition" Complexity: Users will abandon the signup flow if it becomes overwhelming. Assistance: Asking for help isn’t always easy. Language: Is this app or its content relevant to me Problem
